The ARTitude Cottage is a gift shop and home decor store that features the creations of local artists, artisans and creatives in New Braunfels.

A closer look

Brandee Dickinson, owner of the ARTitude Cottage, has over 20 years of experience in repurposing and painting. Dickinson opened the shop to provide a space for local artists to showcase their work.

"Not all [artists] fit into an art gallery,” Dickinson said. “We want more than a coffee shop wall or a vendor mall setting. We need a space to show off our work."

The vision of the shop, Dickinson said, is to be a community hub where artists can display their work in a home-like setting, blending vintage and antique items with new artwork.

“I want the artists to be able to have their freedom,” Dickinson said. "I try to give [the artists] as much space as they need."

Dickinson encourages customers to support local talent as the shop offers a range of mediums, from silversmithing and woodworking to mosaics and traditional paintings.

Apart from the artwork for sale, the shop also sells:
  • Paint
  • Candles
  • Stencils
  • T-shirts
The shop is open six days a week and only closed on Mondays.
